There are a number of simple steps required to link your Trust Payments and PayPal accounts.
To add PayPal, you will first need to have a PayPal Business Account. If you do not already have a PayPal Business Account, click here to get started (link to external site).
To ensure there are no interruptions to PayPal transaction processing on your site reference(s), you must inform Trust Payments of any changes to your PayPal account email address. We will update your Trust Payments account with your new credentials.
There will be no additional fees for performing PayPal transactions through your Trust Payments account. However, standard PayPal transaction fees will apply.
